Ellsworth Kelly

Plant Lithographs

Since the 1940’s Ellsworth Kelly explored the possibilities of abstraction to create paintings and sculptures which reveal an extraordinary vision.

Kelly was always drawn to nature and beginning in 1949, while living in Paris (and influenced in this choice of subject by Matisse and Arp) he began to draw simple plant and seaweed forms. In his drawing of fruits, flowers and leaves Kelly’s concern was with the essence of each plant, and in their purity of line and shape these lithographic drawings provide a critical link to the character of his abstraction. Kelly’s first plant lithographs were produced in the mid 1960s and the artist constantly revisited this subject matter as the inspiration for new prints throughout his career. Ellsworth Kelly died in 2015.
Provenance for all works: Private Collection of Ellsworth Kelly.
